The highlight of Day 8 was the food tour, but that ended at 4, and we didn’t just go back to our hotel room and fall into a food coma. From the dropoff point we wandered up into a park on the west side of the river which had a beautiful view of the city, and failed to ride the funicular railroad for the second time on our trip.
From there, we walked up the hill to Prague castle, featured in the last picture of the previous Day 8 post. We didn’t go into any buildings, just wandered around the various courtyards lookin’ at stuff. Of which there was definitely some.
From there we walked through the palace gardens, which feature not one, but two different structures designed to grow completely inappropriate fruit for the Czech climate. Neither of which we photographed, for some reason. Instead, here’s us standing in front of the Prague:
As we made our way along the hills north of town, we came to a plaza which apparently used to house a giant statue of Stalin pretending to be on a Madness album cover. It now has a giant metronome, which is only slightly less weird.
Also a whole lot of skateboarders. By this point we were pretty beat, so we headed back into town, where we finished our day with the traditional Czech delicacy of pizza. One final thing to give you nightmares – this sculpture of Kafka riding a headless man which is not, oddly enough, by David Czerny.
